Cornerstone VNA Offers Virtual Hospice Volunteer Training

Cornerstone VNA Offers Virtual Hospice Volunteer Training

Rochester, NH:  Cornerstone VNA, a nonprofit home health and hospice care provider, is offering a free virtual training beginning in June for individuals interested in becoming a Hospice volunteer.  Due to COVID-19 protocol, this virtual training will take the place of the standard in-person training. This comprehensive 8-week virtual Hospice volunteer training program will focus on: the history of Cornerstone VNA, Hospice history and philosophy, the volunteer job description, the Hospice team, medical and psychosocial aspects, family involvement, and spiritual care.

 

Once trained, volunteers can offer companionship, respite care and their own unique skills to patients and family members in their community for a little as 2-4 hours per week. No medical or volunteer experience is necessary to make a positive difference and provide comfort, support and a reassuring presence to Hospice patients and their families.

 

According to current Cornerstone VNA Hospice Volunteers, “Hospice volunteering has been the most rewarding and humbling experience of my life” and “Hospice visiting has shown me how to be present.” Cornerstone VNA invites individuals to be a part of this enriching and meaningful volunteer experience. To register for this training or for more information about the Hospice Volunteer Program, please contact Nancy Nicolazzo, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at 603-994-7041 or NNicolazzo@cornerstonevna.org.
